Freshwater Fly Reels

Quality fly rods should, and deserve to, be paired with quality reels.  Rent This Rod has partnered with Ross Reels USA in order to exclusively offer the finest reels on earth to our customers.  The Ross brand represents a superior level of quality and durability that compliments our rental rod arsenal incredibly well.  

Ross Reels Animas


 A fully-redesigned frame and spool are highlights of the new Ross Animas Reel. The spool shows off the cutting-edge manufacturing techniques Ross Reels has developed, delivering a design that is incredibly strong and visually stunning. The Animas also re-joins the family by incorporating an ultra-light canvas phenolic handle which gets tackier when wet. A new trouble-free spool release yields zero-maintenance performance, allowing the Animas to be ready for any fresh or saltwater excursion. 

The frame is accented by a machined silhouette of the Colorado mountains in Ross Reels’ backyard. Its uniquely ported design and structural profile are eye-catching industry firsts. The two-tone drag knob sports an updated aesthetic with a lower profile and increased grip. An improved composite drag system delivers more power in an established Ross design used and loved by more than 80,000 fly anglers the world over.  Description taken from
